How about repairing your laptop rather than replacing it. How about not getting the latest greatest just because. How about using what you have until it no longer meets your needs. Then passing it to someone who can use your old stuff. That to me is going Green.

Or bin your computer and write. It worked in the past, it can work again!

Green's my favourite colour. The colour of life!

This's been an ongoing thing for me this past year or so. It's good to encourage
this practice. I've noticed over the years that this is getting more accepted in my country
and even more so in most parts of Europe. UK lagged a bit for some years, but now
it's keen to go green. When I was a kid, going green/recycling was unheard of lol!

....I'm back, but only as a part-timer... :)

When I was a kid, we did it because we couldn't afford to do anything else. We repaired our shoes, cars and built things that worked. They didn't have to look pretty. My Father built a box fan that cooled the house. You wanted air conditioning, you opened a window.

I agree, all this technology sucks.

Who the hell wants convenience anyway.

You could smile when you say that.:)
